Top representatives of the international air cargo industry to meet Leipzig in 2010
TIACA brings together top decision-makers in the international logistics and air cargo industry. It is a worldwide organization that serves a membership which includes all major segments of the air cargo and logistics industry: airlines, airports, forwarders, ground handlers, air cargo carriers, courier and express companies, general sales agents, brokers, shippers, and educational institutions.
During the three-day event, topics such as security regulations for air cargo screening in Europe and the United States, supply chain management, global trade and how it has been affected by the economic crisis, or commercial viability of alternative fuels will be discussed.
The top-class meetings will be held at Leipzig/Halle Airport, in The Westin Leipzig Hotel and in the Porsche Customer Service Center. More than 200 attendees are expected in Leipzig in 2010.
The 2009 event took place in Vancouver, Canada.

"By hosting the TIACA event the Leipzig-Halle air cargo hub will become the meeting place for representatives of the global air transport and logistics industry.
Once again, the location will be in the focus of the industry and have the opportunity to present itself as a modern and intermodal cargo transshipment center at the heart of Europe. Our guests from all corners of the world will discover the city of Leipzig and its surroundings and thus help us draw the attention of a wider public to our attractive region."
